January Bulb Binge

Thank you to Royal Greenwich Parks and Open Spaces for the 2000 free bulbs given to FSP in November. And to Woodlands Trust for the shrub saplings.

They are all planted at last, thanks to the efforts of a select team of members on the last Saturday of January.

Brrrrr! Spring in the air!

The intrepid Peter and Keith of Parks and Open Spaces tree gang managed to clear out the bird boxes along Dothill path mid February ready for new tenants.  However housing is at a premium for the moment because three of the boxes had been seriously vandalised by parakeets and/or squirrels. Hard to tell.

These were taken down and will be replaced. Eight of the boxes had been inhabited, the same as last season. But not the same boxes…hmmm

 

 

Who’s holding the ladder?

 

 

 

Battling the increasing chilly wind they re-positioned the 6 bat boxes that had been refurbished.  You’ll spot them roughly in the same area as before. Many thanks to Clive who re-roofed the bat boxes and Peter and Keith for their expertise and ladder!

 

Cut back crusade! Saturday 27 January at 11am

The undergrowth is winning!

Our park is in need of a little TLC, so if you are able to lend a hand for and hour or so on Saturday (weather permitting, if it’s pouring we will re-schedule) to help cut back some of the overgrown vegetation, we would be really glad of your help.
 
We are meeting at the cross road at Dot Hill at 11am, please bring secatuers, gloves and any other tools that you think might be helpful.
 
Many hands make light work !  Thanks in advance from the Management Committee
